I Love Paris in the Springtime...

Phew! I have just finished three exhausting days of proofing 24 Hours Paris in preparation for its coming launch on 12th May! It's amazing how many finicky errors can slip through, and I'm sure there are many lingering. Still, it gives me a great feeling when I look back through all the research, all the writing and, yes, all the wonderful eating!

Starting on Monday, I'll be updating the 24 Hours Paris blog with hour by hour tips, right up until launch day. There are already a few bits and bobs on there; feel free to have nose around!

And here's a little blurb about the book:

In a city like Paris, it’s tempting to stick to the beautiful but beaten paths leading straight to the Eiffel Tower, Notre Dame and the Champs Elysée. But Paris is so much more than a collection of clichés; it’s bursting with life, from early morning markets to midnight movies. But how can you know where – and when – to get the best of what’s beneath the city’s gilded surface? The only thing for it is to break down the day, hour by hour, and make your choice from Paris’ top picks. That’s exactly what 24 Hours Paris does. From weaving tapestries to jazz in an underground torture chamber, you’ll see the best of what’s on offer city-wide at any moment in time.

Now, with the rare sun streaming in my London window and my work done for the day, I actually do feel in a spring-like mood!

I can't wait! I may go to Paris at the end of May or the beginning of June.

Thanks Karen and Theresa... and someone whose name I'm afraid I can't quite make out! Theresa, Paris is beautiful in the spring. So romantic!

I can't wait to see the finished product.

Congratulations! That must be a brilliant feeling. 24 Hours Paris sounds great. I have no plans to go there soon but I'll check out the blog to see what I'm missing out on.
